I thought the new version of Nightmare
on Elm Street was just okay.
It looks like they tried to satisfy everyone
but for me it's just not scary enough.
The last scene was the one and only big
shocker like I remembered in the old days. But that just didn't
cut it for me.
Maybe I should have said more slashes?
Freddie's back, and so the Nightmare
on Elm Street starts all over again.
Providing more violence than actual frights,
director Samuel Bayer rehashes one of the most successful horror
franchises, hoping to tap into a new generation with sleep deprivation.
It's a darker, more foreboding kind of
film, but this time with a back story to explain Freddie's motivation
to kill in a dream world -- do we care?
Been there, done that.
This is a new remake of Wes Craven's original
1984 classic horror film called A Nightmare on Elm Street.
The movie restarts the series that deals
with deadly force in dreams.
The one thing that bothers me the most
about this type of bloody slasher fantasy flick is that the real
nightmare will return in the form of a sequel.
